Saudi Wahabites Start Up Jihad TV in Spain, Reaching Out to 700 Million Spanish Speakers

Saudi “Spiritual Guide” Behind 9/11 Starts Up Jihad TV Channel in Spain


The writer here thoughtlessly uses the term “conservative school of Wahabism”, making it sound as if being “conservative” somehow  equals  Mohammedan zealotry and genocidal Islamic doctrine. We find that offensive.

ANSAmed) – MADRID – The project centres on the creation of a television channel called “Cordoba” in Madrid, with headquarters in the industrial area of Tre Cantos. A channel meant to spread, in Spanish, in the Iberian peninsula and in Latin America the conservative Islamic school of Wahhabism. But, according to anti-terrorism experts quoted today by ABC newspaper, the television channel risks being the basis for ‘Jihad’ preaching in the Hispanic community which, with 700 million Spanish speakers, is tempting for Wahhabi proselytism.

Other news from the RoP:

Wahhabism, a conservative Islamic movement begun in the 18th century with the aim of bringing Islam back to its pure origins, is official doctrine in Saudi Arabia, the native country of Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden and the country of origin of most of the September 11 bombers, but whose government is a U.S. ally and is strongly involved with the fight against Islamic terrorism.

The man behind the promotion of the new TV channel, the launch of which was put back from August to October, is the Saudi Sheikh and theologian Saleh Al Fawsan, member of the Council of great sages of Saudi Arabia. The second part of the project would include, according to sources quoted in the newspaper, the launching of ”Cordoba TV” also in France, the United Kingdom and China. ”Saleh Al Fawzan, ” writes ABC, ”not only executes therefore one of the duties of his doctrine, which is to spread it outside of Saudi Arabia, but he includes his project in an attack by Islamic extremism to ‘recuperate Al Andalus’, considered by Muslims to be paradise lost and occupied by the Spanish”.

The new channel could start up in October, if the obstacles that blocked its scheduled start in August are overcome. But it is by no means certain that the project will get the go ahead.

Sheikh Saleh Al Fawzan, together with his son in Saudi Arabia, is the owner of a communications company and a digital newspaper and has reportedly already received a ban by the government of Mohamed VI on launching his TV channel in Morocco. Attempts to start up the channel in Granada and Cordoba, in Andalusia, came to no conclusion. From here arose the decision to head for Madrid.

According to the quoted anti-terrorism experts, Cordoba TV could become a dangerous instrument for proselytism and for the radical Islamic factions, destabilising the Islamic community in Spain. The August start of the channel of seventy year-old Sheikh Al Fawzan and his son Abdulaziz Al Fawzan has also been problematic, according to ABC, because of the rivalry between the Spanish Federation of Islamic Religious Entities (FEERI) and the Union of Islamic Communities of Spain (UCIDE), the two most numerous Islamic associations in the Iberian peninsula, inspired by different interpretations of the Koran.

Al Fawzan is identified by ABC as the spiritual guide of one of the terrorists behind the September 11 attacks, Saudi Abdulaziz al Omari, who was part of the command group directed by Mohamed Atta. Al Omari graduated from the Islamic University Imam Mohamed Ibn Saud, where his professor of sharia, Islamic law, was none other than Saleh Al Fawzan. (ANSAmed).

  1. eta is probably joining with the jihadis, eta hates the spanish people, didn’t you know, moron?

  2. Eta is a terrorist organization – I suggested, although it seems that the suggestion was too subtle for you, that they could blow a few mohammedans up instead attacking the Spanish people. Learn to read behind the lines, and also grow a brain – they can be useful you know (brains that is – added clarification just for you).
